New members welcome to attend April's Former Players meeting at Poolfoot Farm

Fleetwood Town’s Former Players Association are heading back to Poolfoot Farm for their monthly catch-up next Thursday morning, with the meeting set to start at 10am.

The FPA are back for their fourth meeting of the year at our training complex next week, with the association hoping for similar numbers to attend as last month, which saw new members and many of the regulars.

Last time out, special guest Alex Stepney attended the meeting and addressed the group about his footballing career - as well, he talked about the one cap he got for England back in 1968 when they played Sweden in a friendly match against Swedeen.

It was a great insight into his career which spanned across English giants Chelsea and Manchester United, before making the move to the United States of America to play for the Dallas Tornados.


The meeting started off in the usual fashion, with Stuart Murdoch speaking to those in attendance about upcoming events, giving a birthday shoutout to those who celebrate in the month of March and tickets for upcoming matches at Highbury.

Later on, the group took part in the monthly sports quiz, which was hosted by Kev Byrne, who commanded the room in his very own way. There was one winner [see images below] who claimed a very luxurious prize.

Bobby Cuthbertson took on 'Higher or Lower' this week with Kevin Byrne being the centre of attention hosting the Poolfoot Farm version of the game. Bobby got the furthest we've seen in months, getting down to the last card to see if he would be crowned champion.

Unfortunately for Bobby, he chose to go lower than the eight on show, with Ange Hargreaves turning round a King on the stand meaning it was heartbreak for Bobby and the room - who were very engaged, giving their advice every turn.


Existing and new members are welcome to attend the latest meeting at Poolfoot Farm (FY5 4HX), with the meeting taking place between 10am-12pm on Thursday 4 April, we can't wait to see you all there!
